Shopping for Discount Rugs in Houston
Who doesn’t love a good bargain, particularly where rugs are concerned? When you find a great deal on a discount rug at a Houston rug shop or bazaar, it can feel as if you’ve discovered gold. There’s just one problem when it comes to purchasing vintage or antique rugs: how do you know when you’ve found the right one?
For starters, there are a number of sophisticated fakes on the market that can fool the untrained eye. But let’s side aside for a moment whether vintage or antique rug in question is authentic—when factoring whether a rug will be the ideal fit for your home or business, you also have to take size, shape, color, style and fabrics into account. And arguably the biggest question of all: how will you clean and care for the rug without ruining it?

Finding a Space for Your Discount Rug
A major question you need to ask yourself when looking for a rug is where it will be displayed. For instance, low-pile wool rugs are better suited for high traffic areas such as guest rooms, offices and reading spaces because their longer fibers and loops make them “fluffier” than other rugs. By contrast, high-pile rugs, which are a bit denser and easier to vacuum, make more sense in rooms with high traffic such as living rooms and dining rooms.
Practice Good Rug Cleaning Habits
To ensure the long-term quality of your Houston discount rug, you must be vigilant about its care. Generally speaking, your rug should be professionally washed on an annual basis to ensure the removal of deep-set grime. In addition, you can also gentle soaps and scrubbing brushes to spot clean spills and stains, but beware: some rug types are harder to clean than others, so be sure to read cleaning instructions carefully.

A Discount Rug to Match Your Style
One thing to remember is that not every rug, no matter how beautiful and well-made it may be, is right for every owner. For example, if your space is sparsely designed, maybe a bright, colorful rug wouldn’t be the best fit. By the same token, a rug with muted tones wouldn’t be a great choice for a space with wild geometric patterns and colors. Ideally, you want a rug that “speaks” to the space it’s in, rather than contrast with it too sharply.
Don’t Hesitate to Shop Around
Finally, we recommend taking a good, close look at your Houston discount rug before buying it. This means doing something most people tend not to do these days: shop inside brick-and-mortar stores. Sure, there are plenty of good online sources for rug information—including this very website—but there’s no true substitute for seeing the rug with your own eyes and feeling it with your own hands.
With that in mind, we hope you’ll take this opportunity to visit Bagdad Oriental Rugs on Westheimer Road. See our collection of new and antique rugs for yourself, or call 713-783-3500 to learn more about our wide and varied collection!
